Green Day Press Conference – Bangkok – January 11, 2010
Green Day landed in Thailand and then headed off to a press conference. It’s a pretty funny interview where the band “endorses” Singha beer, Tre opens a beer with a water bottle, Billie proves that he can’t count and gives a nice answer to the interviewer’s question about President Obama and in the end, they are all swamped by flowers. It reminded me of the musical Flower Drum Song for a moment there. All in all, it’s a great press conference and very fun to see the boys saying silly stuff again.
The clip also has also an awesome shout-out to Prima Donna when the interviewer asks them about their opening band. The boys praise PD… and Tre notes that they are huge in Spain and Portugal!
Speaking of Prima Donna, Kevin Preston tweeted this when they got to their hotel room yesterday:
“We are now in Thailand. I am lounging around butt naked in my hotel room xoxoKevin”
I’m not sure if that is quite what I had in mind when I hoped that Prima Donna (and Green Day) would tweet about their trip to the Far East, but hell, I’ll take it. The visual alone is well worth it. Now, let’s hope there is video!
